Description and features of Spearfishing Traveler Pole Spear with 5 Prong Paralyzer Barb Tip:
There are longer versions that break down into two separate pieces that screw together.
The most popular type of pole spear is the Spearfishing Traveler Pole Spear (also known as a three-prong spear).
A pole spear is worked on by placing the rubber loop in the crook of your thumb.
You then reach up the spear in order to stretch the elastic band then you grab the spear so the band holds in tension.
You have to shoot the spear by simply letting go of the shaft from hand. An effective range for a spear is the length of the spear itself, which means that you have to be close to your target.
THE THREE DIFFERENT SPEARS OF THIS KIND ARE:
1. Aluminum. Pole spears in this variety are lighter than those made with fiberglass.
The pole is lighter in weight that can result in greater speed in water. However, an aluminum pole is prone to be damaged because it’s not that malleable.
A bend in the shaft causes a point in the spear to be highly weakened, and may snap if you try to straighten it back out.
2. Carbon Fiber. Spears using this material are very light, and are the lightest in the market.
The shafts are smaller in diameter, and are very lightweight. There is also a decreased resistance, which matches just about right given the smaller diameter.
One thing about carbon fiber spears is that it may be hard to pin a large fish against a rock because of the flexibility of the material.
3. Fiberglass. Pole spears made from this material are heavier than aluminum and carbon fiber. In fact, it’s the heaviest of the three.
However, the extra weight that poles with this material comes with advantage.
That being said, it can also be a bit negative as a heavier pole results in less velocity in the water.
These are simple in design though effective.
Carbon fires are light in weight so they are effective to use.
Thus, these are the most simple but efficient Spearfishing Traveler Pole Spear to use.
